moved more than 32,000 tons of snow and city and towns across western new york are preparing for the flooding by giving out sandbags to many residents here. vinita? >> unbelievable to see you near that rooftop and we know you've been there all week. thank you on batch of all of us. from west seneca new york. in london this morning emergency crews responded after a large explosion a top hotel. hundreds of guests evacuated from the hotel following a gas explosion in the basement. taken to other nearby hotels at least 11 people were injured in that blast that rocked the building, causing part of it to collapse. president obama has quietly approved guidelines to allow the u.s. military to target taliban fighters in afghanistan. the "new york times" says the decision broadly expands the american mission in afghanistan after this year. it would let u.s. planes conduct air support for afghan operations and deployment of combat forces if and when
needed. the 13-year u.s. military involvement in afghanistan was set to end on december 31st. president obama is in nevada today after making his any-of-new immigration policy official. signed two executive orders flying west on friday. we have the latest on the new policy and the political fallout from it. good morning julianna. >> reporter: good morning. republicans reacted furiously saying the president oversterped his authority and yesterday as you mentioned the president was in nevada. the state with the highest proportion of illegal immigrants in the u.s. president obama said his immigration measures are a temporary solution and can be voided if congress pass as comprehensive bill i. have a. >> i have a simple answer. pass a bill. >> reporter: selling his movement in las vegas -- >> we're not giving up. keep working with members of congress to make permanent reform a reality but until that
day comes there are actions that i have the legal authority to take be that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just and this morning i began to take some of those actions. >> reporter: his actions shield an estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. they apply to adults and children who have lived in america at least five years, and have no criminal record. adults with children born in the u.s. or with permanent legal status can also apply for a three-year work permit. there's no path to citizenship or access to obamacare, but with the stroke of his pen aboard air force one earlier in the day, president obama officially defied republican warning. house speaker john boehner said his party would respond in the days ahead, but didn't offer specifics. >> with this action the president has chosen to deliberately sabotage any chance of enacting bipartisan reforms that he claims to seek and as i told the president yesterday, he's damaging the presidency itself.
>> reporter: some conservative republicans suggested suing president obama, while others have proposed cutting off funding for agencies that will implement the plan. but by focusing on legal challenges or threats of a government shutdown republicans risk alienating hispanic and even some independent voters ahead of the 2016elections. now, while republicans weigh their next steps the spread going to embark on a major sales pitch, american support immigration reform but are wary of the president acting on his own so he'll travel to chicago next week and meet with community representatives. and a look at what challenges lie ahead for the president and what this means for the country, is jonathan allen, washington bureau chief forbloomberg news. jonathan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anthony. >> let's start with the president's action here's and why he took it because he knew he was going to sort of ignite a firestorm and polls suggest people don't like the fact he acted alone, so why did he do
this now? >> i think there are a couple of reasons. number one, i think this is a time where he felt like he could do it. you know he'd been told by democrats in congress to wait until after the midterm elections, worried this would hurt them. he waited until after the midterm elections. they lost their elections anyway. i think he felt this was a good spot to do it but i also think this was a time when the president has seen politically his approval ratings drop and dropping because democrats have been less approving of him and i think he's trying to get this base back behind him in some some cases talking hispanics, other cases, democrats more broadly than that. >> you mentioned that julianna brought it up also. seems like a balancing act. what do republicans need to do and why is president obama trying to appeal to hispanics? >> republicans struggled to find the answer. clobbered in recent elections by hispanic voters.
democrats became worried after this mid-term election felt they didn't get enough turnout from hispanic voters. the answer for republicans figure out internally where their party needs to go on this. hard for them to win a national election, meanering a presidential election unless they nominate candidates who are talking in ways that are much more sensitive to hispanics. >> republicans are furious, and realistically, can they stop the president here? >> probably not. you know what's going to happen i think in the new congress is you'll see the republican house and the republican-led senate maybe with a handful of democratic supporters trying to block this immigration order, trying to pass legislation that would prevent it from going into effect, or stop it repeal it something along those lines, but ultimately, the president would be able to veto any legislation like that if it got to his desk and i think practically it's going to be very difficult for the next president to overturn this, unless there is a permanent solution. i think telling people to come out of the shadows, to sign up
with the government, perhaps to get work permits to identify themselves and then a couple years from now turning that back is going to be very very diffiult to do politically. >> before we let you go the tweet from hillary clinton last night. she tweeted she's in support of the bill. is there a strategy behind that? >> yes. i think there is a strategy behind that and i think it's -- i think it's that she wants to be the president of the united states come january, 2017 and very much understands that republicans are on the ropes with hispanics and anything short of endorsing this would have been damaging to her with hispanics. >> john allen, not mincing words this morning. thank you so much. >> take care. president obama sass the target of a republican lawsuit on health care that accuses him of overstepping his authority and implementing the affordable care act better known as obamacare, republicans challenge administration claims that more than 7 million americans have signed up. and they argue that the president is circumventing the democratic process. >> the president's confrontations with republicans in congress will be on the
agenda tomorrow morning on "face the nation" here on cbs. bob schieffer's guest includes congressman michael mccall, republican of texas, luis gutierrez, democrat illinois and a republican of idaho. also new york city mayor bill de blasio. with just two days to go the international negotiations over iran's nuclear program reached a critical stage seeing a breakthrough scientist john kerry extended face-to-face talks with his iranian counter part. >> reporter: just days ahead of that november 24th deadline secretary kerry and iran's top nuclear negotiator jabadzar ichlti f are scrambling. to no one's surprise proved extremely difficult. one of the key negotiators, british foreign secretary philip hammond said friday they are
nowhere near a deal. >> these are very difficult and technically complex matters and we have a long way to go if we are going to get to a deal before the deadline on monday. >> reporter: sticking points include how much potential bombmaking material iran should be allowed to and have how quickly economic sanctions would be lifted in return. iran wants immediate relief. sanctions have pummeled their economy, but the u.s. wants to lift them gradually, and only if iran complies with the terms of the deal. iranian president mu hahawnis under pressure to turn the economy around. a state department's spokeswoman says the peoplefuture 6of iran is at stake. >> it will allow them the economic opportunities they deserve. if not envision a scenario where the economic sanctions we have put in place continue to really cripple the iranian economy.
>> reporter: and president obama is also facing pressure. the nuclear deal is one of his chief foreign policy goals. yet republicans and some democrats in congress are threatening to jeopardize it by heaping on new sanctions. failure to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon could kick off an arms race in the already tumultuous middle east. according to this man at the national iranian-american council. >> if this diplomatic process fail wes return to the cycle of mutual escalation that existed before the diplomatic process took hold and will go beyond that point. war becomes an increasing possibility. >> reporter: the stakes, extremely high. at one point on friday iran's diplomat said they were flying back to iran to discuss a proposed deal and calmed it all off abruptly. after a series of late-night meetings here in vienna it appears there is still more work to be done. anthony and vinita?
>> margaret brennan reporting from vienna. an american airlines jet just pulled into the gate when hit by a shuttle bus. no one injured. the impact of the collision damaged part of the plane's right wing. the plane's return flight to dallas was cancelled. a window washer plunged 11 stories from a san francisco building and landed on top of a moving car and he lived. andrea borba of a san francisco station kpix-tv has the story i.. >> i just saw a blue object and then the crash on to the car and then i saw, as it rolled off, i realized it was a body. it was a person. >> reporter: the margin between tragedy and luck in downtown san francisco was the length of a moving toyota camera from 11 stories, 130 feet up an unharnessed window washer plummeted towards the asphalt below only to land on this man's car. >> the impact was really -- loud and hard that i didn't know
what happened. >> reporter: mohammed thought he'd hit a bicrick manykrik mcycleist only to discover a window washer lying on the street. >> not flat on the ground hand and feet were high. sitting on his bottom but he was shaken pretty bad. >> reporter: so was mohammed. in another stroke of sheer fortune, the window washer tumbled through the air and landed behinded driver's seat a few more inches could have been fatal. >> when i look at my car, and i saw it was completely smashed. you know? top of my car was completely smashed. only place that wasn't smashed, where i was sitting. >> reporter: there are severe injuries and insurance nightmares to be dealt with but for mohammed's wife only this reality, today was my lucky day and the gentleman who fell's lucky day, because we both have our husbands. we 4r069 our car, but who cares. you know? >> oh that was andrea borba of our san francisco station. what a great way to look at haul that. >> so right. lost her car, but who cares?
it's all in how you fall in these situations and couldn't have turned out better. >> as we learned, a couple seconds that car would have moved away. that whole story would have turned out very differently. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the "washington examiner" saying thousands of e-mails from lois lerner have been found. the treasury department's inspector general made the discovery after sitting through disaster recovery tapes. it comes five months after lerner and other irs officials testified before congress that e-mails possibly showing efforts to deny tax exemption status to tea party and other conservative grumps were lost forever. the "new york times" says an e-mail shows general motors was pressuring one of the suppliers to continue making an ignition switch even though there were concerns about its safety. correspondents from 2005 comes as gm faces several losses linking the faulty ignition switches to 33 deaths. the official who wrote the
e-mail was dismissed in june. the detroit free press says the monday night matchup between the buffalo bills and new york jets at forbes field is free. the game was moved to detroit as buffalo digs out from seven feet of snow. getting to the airport, no easy tank. the bills were taken by snowmobile to catch their flight. the grand rapids press report snow days could soon be history in western michigan. doesn't that make you sad? >> i don't like that sorry at all. >> two school districts opened up virtual classrooms this month when bad weather forced them to cancel classes, teachers record their lesson plans and students can then download from home. the idea is is a work in progress in some places as district claim they lack the technology to offer online instruction. >> as my son would say, that's just wrong. and the website, the verge, says netflix is making a play at traditional network tv grabbing the tag team behind the show "30 rock," set to take their new
comedy series "unbreakable kimmy schmidt" to nbc this spring until netflix made them a two season offer. the first 13 episodes are set to run in march. >> tina fey is not a regular cast member. >> interesting. jane krakowski is though. one of my favorite. i wanted to see what she would do about "30 rock." like a lot of people. it is about 22 after the hour. a look at the weather for your weekend. coming up the late ef on bill cosby and the growing number of women who accuse him of sexual abuse years ago. and later, 21st century car theft. our computer laid an internet connected cars are targets for

♪ it is time for morning rounds of cbs news. first up this week an important development in the fight against heart disease. we know lowering cholesterol helps but how low should it go? >> a new study looks at a new drug. it could reduce the risk of heart problems. >> the study may change the way doctors treat patients with heart attack or severe chest pain.
the findings were presented at a meeting of the medical heart association. >> we see benefits of cholesterol levels that are low to very low in post heart attack patients. >> half received a high dose statin, and have received vytorin. statin alone lowered the bad cholesterol, and vytorin dropped it to an average of 54. one year ago, new cardiology guidelines suggested doctors stop targeting specific ldl levels because there was no good evidence one level was better than the other. and it's believed those recommendations need to be changed immediately. >> this study blows up the guidelines. the guidelines didn't have
target levels for ldl cholesterol. many thought it was wrong, and now we know it's wrong. >> do we know that's the best way to lower cholesterol? >> we don't know that at all. there are new statins better at lowering the ldl than the older statins. this is interesting, because it says going from the ldl, which is a low level of 69 going down to 54 makes a difference. the question is what is the best way to get it down there. >> what are the implications now? >> well, some cardiologists say you can't go too low, you can't be too thin or rich and can't have an ldl that is too low. we don't know if there is a too low. 54 is bet 'than 69, and is it better to go lower than that?
are there side effects or is it safe? do you get a benefit from doing that? more evidence a large number of breast cancer patients choose mastectomy over lumpectomy. tell us about this study. >> this was an interesting and large, large study. the biggest point they made was over an eight-year period the number of women who could have had a lumpectomy which is a smaller surgery for their cancer actually opted for a mastectomy and the number increased by 34%, and that's a total removal of the breasts and in some cases women chose a double mastectomy and that's removing breasts that have not been affected by cancer, and women were fully informed by doing the larger surgery they were not lowering their risk of getting cancer.
>> why pick the more invasive surgery? >> i find in my practice a lot of women feel there's a causeosmetic benefit to removing them completely and doing reconstruction, and a lot of it is fear, looking at an over abundance of caution. >> and i had a patient that just wanted to be done with it and she didn't want it hanging over her head, and it was not the cosmetic affect. if you have one breasts reconstructed and another one that is the original breast it could be asymmetrical you want to do both and have a better cause cosmetic result, but this patient didn't want it hanging over her head. and then based on how far your head tilts down texting
can be harmful. average americans spend an hour on their smartphone that could later cause surgery because of the stress. and then researchers say people who have home cooked meals eat healthier, and consume fewer calories than those that don't, and people that cook at home six to seven nights a week eat fewer calories when they do go out. in another study, school lunches were looked at and nearly 6 in 10 tens put a vegetable on their plate, but most did not take a bite of that vegetable. it's clear what we should be doing as parents, right? >> i feel as i should put a camera so people could witness the broccoli wars that go on with my girls.
number one, the importance of eating at home, and kids mirror what they eat outside of the home. the school cafeteria environment, and kids were more likely to take that bite of a vegetable if the cafeteria was quieter and less chaotic, or if a teacher was sitting at the table with them. but the biggest thing is just not to give up, you know. try to get that one bite in and because that matters. a growing body of evidence suggests the happiest part of our lives begins in our 50s. it's called the u-curve. what is that? >> it's a study and it talks about how happiness starts to go down in your 20s and 30s and dips down and reaches the bottom in the morning and early 50s and then starts to come out again, and it's a long article, very interesting about maybe all the different reasons when you are in the middle area the bottom of the u-curve, you are maybe in
the sandwich generation and taking care of kids and parents and then as you start to come out of it you get wisdom and appreciate the moment a little bit. my mother used to talk to me about appreciating a little bit, and peeling an orange at this moment this orange never has seen the light of day, and that moment you appreciate. it's just a statistical analysis and doesn't apply to everything. >> when i turned 50, and i was rather grumpy that day, and i talked to my mother in her 70s, and she looked at me and said my 50s were my fav writorite decade and it took me six years to understand why and now i do. what exactly happens when you get older? >> i think we do get smarter. basically, as the horizons grow shorter, we start to focus on what the science has long shown us makes us happy, whether it's meaningful relationships or
putting less pressure on ourselves and whether it's appreciating the very pleasant moment like john's mother peeling the orange appreciatating the moment makes us happy, but we are not wise enough or able to do it until we start to get older. >> i am going to appreciate an orange, that's for sure. >> appreciate your health. >> that's the most important part. thank you both for being with us this morning. hackers are targeting your car. dan ackerman looks at unprecedented steps by auto makers. you are watching cbs this morning saturday.

until recently, car thieves had a simple brute force method take crow bar, smash the window. but modern cars are loaded with computers and hackers are moving in. security experts have shown it can be done by taking control of a car, steering braking, locks, lights and other functions. let's learn more from dan ackerman. >> good morning. >> we talk about all of this tech noth and the prospect of driverless cars. how big a threat is this cyber hacking your automobile? >> we talk so much about smart car, keshgted cars and even driveless cars. surprising we don't think about it more. they're connected in many ways. bluetooth connections, and car starting to build in 4g connections oh people in the car can get on the internet while driving and a lot of cars in their own operating systems, updated over the air. interesting we're asking
insurance companies having to plug third party data and a lot of ways to bring outside influences into your vehicle. >> i need you to hold my hand on this one a little. exactly how does it work? can a thief, if you are connected to the internet hack your car the same way they could a computer? >> fortunately right now most of the car hacking we've seen demonstrated is academic actually hard to do. expensive. and not really payoff. hackers like to go where there's easy money. getting people's credit card numbers. we've seen people who are academic and interested in the topic get spoog a car with a lap copp connected to a port controlling the headlights and locking the doors. >> it can be done? >> it can be done. right now it's too impractical to be something hackers and thieves would commercially do but we're getting to the point people can demonstrate ton a regular basis. >> it's not just about protecting consumer privacy, also safety. when anthony mentioned driverless cars, my first thought, down the road can
someone take control of your car if they hacked into your system? >> everyone is super interested in it. seems like a great way to drive this way in the future. so many problems technologiwise, a lot of time since on the road because of these safety issues. >> how sophisticated are these in automobiles? >> we're in the early days and i don't think they've put a lot of thought into how to protect the systems and authenticate all the messages and data that come into them and we're asking people to bring their own personal devices into the car. plug your phone in plug your media device in. whether bluetooth, direct connection. those systems are usually separate from the control systems of the car but still bringing an outside device and it's easier to compromise easier to hack a phone, into your car and connecting it. >> you mentioned those outside device pms we're so used to software updates. everything updated to increase security. down the road or now will we have to start updating car

the genre is changing. we begin with a situation in ferguson missouri. peacekeeping preparations include about 100 fbi agents. a decision expected soon on whether to indict police officer darren wilson in the death of michael brown. >> also, the fbi has told cbs news that two men have been arrested on firearms charges. brandon orlando baldwin purchased explosive material during an operation which possibly could be used during ferguson protests. mark strassman is in the county courthouse in clayton, missouri. >> reporter: good morning. protesters have been out every night here there are a couple of different hot spots, one where last night 160 protesters were out yelling, screaming, they blocked traffic, one point causeded a car accident. over the last three nights there have been a total of 11 arrests, as police in riot gear clashed with protesters blocking streets and exercising
constitutional rights while police are saying they go too far. the backdrop is this grand jury proceeding that's going on will officer wilson be criminally indicted for the shooting death of michael brown? there are 12 grand jurors 9 have to agree on a charge the criminal charge from murder to involuntary manslaughter all the way to no charge at all. nine jurors have to agree in a charge. the prosecutor's not recommended one. jurors have to go over the material that they've been presented, including testimony from officer wilson himself, and try to decide did he do something criminally wrong here when he shot and killed michael brown on august 9th? anthony? >> mark strassman, thank you. for more on this we're joined by cbs news legal analyst riki kleeman. >> good morning. >> mark touched on charges they may be considering here. missouri's grand jury system is quite different than most states, correct? >> indeed, it is. >> how so? >> many ways. most states have a grand jury where 23 people sit, and 13 have
to vote on an zimt. easy to get an indictment. we used to say in law school you could indict a ham sandwich if you're a prosecutor or not if you chose to. this grand jury, first of all, is composed of 12 it only takes a vote of nine. by the way that's harder to get an indictment to get 9 of 12 than 13 to 23 simply by the math. also this grand jury's very different, meeting once a week and it is getting from the prosecutor the entire case. it is getting the good the bad, and the ugly all pieces of evidence are going in. ordinarily a police officer would go in and say, this is the evidence that i found, this is what susie would say, this is what johnny would say, all hearsay can go in. here, all of the witnesses are being called in to testify on both sides. what the prosecutor is also doing is saying and the two assistant female prosecutors,
are saying to this grand jury you can consider all of these charges. this is up to you, not up to me. >> right. >> but he's saying something that, in your own words it's very rare, could be illegal, the fact this prosecuting attorney is saying if there's no indictment i will release all of the evidence in this case in. >> it's difficult for view to understand this. grand jury proceedings are secret for a reason. they were always the citizens that stood between the accused and the crown, if we go back to the history of the grand jury. so they were allowed to testify in secret the witnesses, so if they could testify without fear of reprisal. so here i am sure you have many witnesses who have testified that do not want their names or their testimony publicized. we never have heard of this. now, missouri does have a law that says that you can go to the courts and get grand jury minutes released for cause
shown, good cause shown. so what the prosecutor's saying if there's no indictment communities around the country, i want you to be calm my good cause is so that there is no violence. that is really extraordinary. in most places if a prosecutor let out evidence of a grand jury he or she could be prosecuted or lose their license. >> as i said mark laid out some of the charges that the grand jury might be considering. it's up to them to decide what charge they want. surely the prosecutor must be aiming for something here, in the way he presents his evidence, yes in. >> one would think so. i the prosecutor's office has gone out of its way to say the jury's the voice of the community and they will make a decision. so you have everything from murder one, beyond unlikely murder two knowingly, highly unlikely to the manslaughters or a complete defense. by the way, a complete defense for a police officer in the state of missouri is one of the
broadest, in favor of the awesome power that police are to take a life, broader than most states, because he is allowed to take a life if it is a fleeing felon. and in this case if darren wilson knew that these people had been involved in a robbery and if you look at the audio dispatches, it's quite possible that darren wilson knew and they had a terrible scuffle in the car over that gun or just in fighting, where officer wilson was injured and michael brown goes away, the defense can invoke that defense of that extraordinary power given to police. >> after three months of waiting for this so many people tuned in. thank you so much. the massive snow blanketing buffalo, new york area could turn into massive flooding. the seven feet piling on rooftops and snarling traffic is expected to start melting with sunny conditions and temperatures soaring into the 60s. let's get more from the buffalo suburb of west seneca. good morning.
>> good morning. there are sheer walls of white everywhere you turn in many parts of western new york. today will be about digging out and, as you mentioned, preparing for the flooding. crews have been racing to clear those streets. and even open parking lots have been turned into dumping grounds. residents shoveling snow off of their roofs for the last two days because it's expected to rain this weekend which will make the snow harder to move. temperatures could reach the mid 50 tomorrow which means large amounts of snow will melt and cause flooding in some areas. new york governor cuomo said they are prepared for meltdown. cities and towns prone to flooding have been handing out sandbags to many residents. at the request of state's homeland security division new york's incident management team which has a lot of experience dealing with natural disasters, has been deployed to this area to help with cleanup efforts.
>> thanks. starting next year the u.s. military will be allowed to target taliban fighters in afghanistan under new guidelines quietly approved by president obama. "the new york times" says the decision broadly expands the american mission in afghanistan after this year. u.s. planes would be able to conduct air support for afghan operations and deploy combat forces when needed. this morning, president obama is in nevada after making his new immigration policy official. the president signed two executive orders as he flew west on friday that means millions of children are relieved parents will be eligible for legal immigration status under the policy they are celebrating but some americans oppose that change. >> but today our immigration system is broken. >> reporter: for 25-year-old ucla student watching the president outline his executive action on immigration made for a memorable phone call with her
undocumented mother, assuring her she's safe from deportation. what is it like to be able to tell that to your mom? >> i -- you know i -- she sacrificed her dream so we could have a better future. >> reporter: her mother maria brought her to the u.s. from mexico on a visitor's visa. they overstayed. maria went on to have two more children born in the u.s. and because of that qualifies for a three-year work permit under the president's plan. >> it's unbelievable. it's -- it takes me back to two years ago when i got the news that i was going to qualify. for deferred action. >> reporter: that gave her the chance to become one of the hundreds of thousands of so-called dreamers in california, eligible to work legally. and now it's her mother who is benefitting from mr. obama's action. >> it's not enough but it's definitely a step to right
direction. >> i don't think so. >> reporter: patricia moore opposes the executive action. she emigrated from colombia legally and waited 15 years to become a u.s. citizen. >> i'm a person that believes in law. i believe in the framework in order to have a country that will respect my rights. i have to respect the regulations. >> reporter: despite opposition from people like patricia and thousands of others who protested around the country, change is coming. this time for arlette's mother but she believes it's not enough. - >> to be honest with you, that's the least you can do. >> reporter: you ex-texted more. >> hell yeah. this is a band-aid. >> reporter: according to public policy institute of california the u.s. largest immigrant population is in golden state, 10 million people most from mexico and of that 30% are undocumented. for cbs this morning saturday, i'm david begnaud, los angeles. >> ten after the hour. a look at the weather for your

you. but what's happening to your brain while you sleep? a cardiologist at lennox hill hospital is here with us in new york and joins us with interesting answers. good morning. >> good morning. the brain is really the fascinating, mysterious organ we didn't know a lot about until 1950s and that's when we started to discover it's not passive but it has a very active process that goes on at night when we sleep. >> what is happening? i was fascinated to learn neurons are firing as much when we're asleep as when we're awake. is the brain consolidating memory. >> right. so when you get a good night's sleep it primes your brain to accept new information to form memories when you sleep. once you go to sleep it saves or cements that information and consolidates. one of the most interesting things, sort through memories and discards things that are unimportant to clear up storage space and keep things that are more important, like emotional memories. so for instance, if you slipped and fell on the ice, it will remember, gee, i shouldn't step
on the ice, i might fall but you won't remember what the sky looked like or who was standing next to you. helps keep the important thing. >> fascinating. what else happens in the brain at night? >> at night you process information so when you wake up you can better make decisions why we say maybe sleep on it when you have a hard decision to make. it helps you learn procedural tasks or motor tasks. if you're learning how to play the guitar swing golf clubs you practice that, or form images and memories in your brain at night. interestingly, the brain forms creative connections. we've all known creative people who put ideas together that we never would have thought could go together and make a beautiful something out of it and that's what the brain does. it takes these concepts from different parts, combines them when you wake up in the morning, many people describe aha moments. many musicians and writers and scientists. >> how important then is inactivity to the brain? though neurons are firing by definition it's inactive. >> a concept has to do with using time at night to be
inactive or still, and that's evolutionary based, we think. animals in the wild essentially become still or inactive at night because that's the time when they're vulnerable. that may be a trait passed on. all animals sleep. in addition to that we conserve energy. that's a time when you wouldn't be able to hunt in the wild and get food. it's a good time to slow down metabolic processes. >> what's interesting is the brain is actually doing cleansing of toxins at night? >> yes, like a little janitor. the brain cells actually shrink by 50% which opens up passage ways or channels in the brain for flew today flow that clears out toxic chemicals that build up during the day. >> you release growth hormone at night. >> if you're not getting enough sleep, sleep deficient, what is happening? long-term or short-term things to be aware of? >> yes 80% of americans are
sleep deficient. you need ne seven to nine. you can inability to concentrate up to heart disease, weight gain decrease in immune function and at the extreme end, we think it might be related to neuro neurodegenerative diseases like alzheimer's and parkinson's because the brain's unable to clear out the tox inchemicals. >> love the way the brain is filing away things and deciding what to file and what to decide. but that's a whole other segment. >> next, century of supporting the music makers. ♪ some of the biggest >> some of biggest names in music gather to celebrate the 100th anniversary of ascap. we'll explain when "cbs this morning saturday" continues.

would be stuffed with lobster, surf and turf kind of way. the great black truffle mac and cheese pot pie. we have a caramelized bleu cheese pearl onions there goes with the steak thing, but it's a classic dish and then up front we have the sweet potato graton with the meringue brew leied it a bit. it's great. >> i often do asked the production team what the beverage of the morning would be. >> straight for the drink. >> a little more subtle way of putting it. what they described, this sounded interesting. what are is it here? >> well it's baker's mark with apple and ginger beer one of our, justin mox, our mixologist made this. it's delicious. >> one of the shows i used to watch, a cooking show. >> i always used to play sick and stay home and watch cooking shows with great chefs, with julia childs or yang or the

how does all of that add to the work you produce today? >> growing um up my father was chinese and cooked great, beautiful chinese food authentic. my mom, i have to say, a great cook, too. you know. but it was one of those things that, it just -- you know the love of food from culture, just would -- what i really loved. you know? and i'd seen it and being part of that where your grandfather made this recipe or your grandmother made this recipe and you're a part of that big picture, for me that was something i really enjoyed. >> i mean the interesting thing to me is always which people which chefs get -- they follow their love of food and then end up in this business. do you like the business as much as you like the cooking? >> you have to love the business. because if you don't, you're not going to be a great chef. i think that's one of the things that chefs, young chefs these days don't realize. you've got to be super culinary talent and make great food but if you can't understand the business side of it you'll never
have a restaurant. >> i want to hand you this bishdish and get your signature. you don't need a knife. it is that tender. also ask you if you could have this meal with any person past or present, who would that person be? >> i haven't cooked for my parents in a long time. i would probably enjoy it with them. i've been moving around the country a lot. i miss those family dinners. i think i would enjoy that. >> always a solid pick. all right. chef christopher lee, thank you so much. for more on chef lee and "the dish" head to our website. and up next the veteran british band james known in the u.s. for this song -- "blade." more than a dozen albums under their collective belt and will play music from their new album next. so stay with us. you're watching cbs "this morning: saturday."
